Éomund was a descendant of Eofor, and dwelt in Aldburg. He married Théodwyn, the sister of the later King Théoden. Their children were Éomer and Éowyn, who were each to play a great part in the War of the Ring. Éomund himself was slain in battle with Orcs in the Emyn Muil in T.A. 3002. Théodwyn grew ill and died shortly after, and their children were raised by Théoden. [x]
Today in Middle-Earth: Frodo and Sam make their way into Emyn Muil and capture Gollum, who had been following them. (February 28th. 3019 T.A.)
They had almost lost count of the hours during which they had climbed and laboured among the barren slopes and stones of the Emyn Muil, sometimes retracing their steps because they could find no way forward, sometimes discovering that they had wandered in a circle back to where they had been hours before.
Day 15 - Favorite Location/s: ANDUIN / NEN HITHOEL / THE ARGONATH / THE RAUROS FALLS
“The Anduin flows parallel to the Misty Mountains in a broad vale which forms the western part of Rhovanion, lying between the mountains and Mirkwood. After passing Lórien, the river farewells the mountains and flows through the Brown Lands via the North Undeep and South Undeeps until it flows past the Emyn Muil and the Argonath and enters Nen Hithoel through Sarn Gebir. Thence it flows over the Falls of Rauros and past the Mouths of Entwash and the marshes known as the Wetwang. It then passes between the White Mountains and the Mountains of Shadow by Osgiliath, before swinging past the harbour of Harlond close to the Rammas Echor south of Minas Tirith, and the Emyn Arnen and down past the port of Pelargir, entering the Great Sea in the Bay of Belfalas in a broad delta known as the Mouths of Anduin” [x]
Emyn Muil is a Tolkien-themed epic black metal project created by Nartum.
pretty much everything on this album is severely Tolkien influenced, the band name, the album title, the story about Túrin Turambar, Son of Húrin,
2013 was a good year for Epic Black Metal. The Summoning finally released a new album, Caladan Brood exploded onto the scene, and Emyn Muil also released a debut album. With these three bands being mentioned together quite a but in reviews and press (Caladan Brood and Emyn Muil are both now signed to Northern Silence) .
If you’re a fan of Summoning and Caladan Brood you’ve probably already heard this album or at least have experienced the hype around it. After all, it was released two years ago now. Túrin Turambar Dagnir Glaurunga is a truly epic album in scope and execution and any fan of the genre will surely find much to love.
Well, the weather that we see in Lord of the Rings is a product of the location/geography and season. The events of the story span over a year, and they’re traveling through an entire region, so there’s quite a bit of weather going on there.
I think the best way to address this issue is to list where our characters are and when, and then to reference a climate map from Karen Wynn Fonstad’s Atlas of Middle Earth (scroll down to the bottom of the post):
September 3018: Traveling from the Shire to Bree
October 3018: Traveling from Bree to Rivendell
November-December 3018: In Rivendell
January 3019: Traveling along the Misty Mountains, then through Moria
February 3019: Lorien. Frodo and Sam go through the Emyn Muil. The others travel south to Fangorn/Edoras
March 3019: Mostly Rohan or Gondor. Frodo and Sam travel through Dead Marshes, Ithilien, and finally Mordor.
April - July 3019: Gondor
August 3019: The hobbits travel from Gondor to Rohan, and then to Isengard.
September 3019: The hobbits go from Isengard to Rivendell.
October 3019: Rivendell - Bree
November 3019: The Shire
(Now, as for the movie. I think weather/climate was an important part of set design for several of the locations. For example, the Shire is basically shown in perpetual spring/summer (even though, at the end of Return of the King, it should be near winter.) And some locations - like mountains - will always have different weather patterns than the surrounding region (such as being covered in snow, even in spring/summer months.) Lorien, too, is said to have milder weather than the surrounding area because of Galadriel and her ring of power.)
